What is it?
There are many projects we can make with fabric for fashion, quilting, home decor, accessories or crafts. But how do we make them truly ours? How can we personalize what we’ve made so that it really shows our own creative vision. One very dramatic way to achieve that is hand embroidery. And what could be more personal or creative than three dimensional hand embroidery that easily adapts to our every whim? If we can imagine it, we can do it. Welcome to the amazing world of dimensional embroidery with all of its possibilities. Embroidery using a punch needle is often and properly referred to as “thread painting” because of its inexhaustible potential for intricacy and style. Rembrandt to Monet to Picasso, it’s your call. Our potential mediums extend from embroidery floss to hand dyed floss, pear cotton, wools, silks, metallic threads or even 2mm silk ribbon. With all of those fibers we can lay down a virtual kaleidoscope of color and texture on our canvases. And Clover’s Embroidery Stitching Tool is the best way to ensure that your creative experience is all you want it to be.
What does it do?
Hand embroidery with a punch needle is a fiber art technique that involves looping yarn, floss or ribbon in the format of a pattern through fabric. The Clover Embroidery Stitching Tool and its accessories enable us to apply our desired fiber to any selected fabric easily and precisely.
Embroidery Stitching Tool
The punch embroidery technique requires a special needle that is thin, hollow and attached to a comfortable handle for easy manipulation. Our selected embroidery fiber flows through the handle and down through the needle exiting through the eye at the point. As the needle is punched through the fabric and retracted it leaves a loop on the opposite side of the fabric. Succeeding loops fill in our pattern. The handle of the Embroidery Stitching Tool accepts three different sizes of needles to accommodate different sizes of fibers and even has a guide to show us the direction of the needle for successive stitches.

The Clover Extended Needle Threader enables us to pull our thread, floss or ribbon from the entry point on the top of the handle all the way to the eye of the needle. Easy peasy and no frustration.
